Critic reviews for Play Test
[Shut Up and Dance] stood out more for its presentation and mood than its actual plotting.
Playtest,... is an especially creepy episode of Black Mirror revolving around a video game.
Playtest is happy to swap deeper probing for a succession of clever shocks, and a bitterly funny... punchline of an ending. The result is an episode that is gripping but not enduringly frightening; a nightmare that won't linger too long after you wake up.
A unsettling story that takes advantage of psychological terror, with the occasional scare included. [Full Review in Spanish]
There's a lot of self-awareness in its use of jump scares and tropes that also make this episode hilarious. Playtest is a fun episode.
